3 dead in reported boiler explosion in St. Louis

1 dead, several injured after boiler explodes at Soulard box company

Another person was pinned underneath the van-sized piece of equipment.

In 2014, the company paid $2,450 of an initial $3,500 fine for improper energy control procedures, such as failing to properly train employees to ensure machinery was turned off and powered down and for not conducting annual energy control inspections. We have been informed that a fire of unknown origin erupted this morning at the Loy Lange property adjacent to our Faultless Healthcare Linen plant at 2030 South Broadway; that material from the Loy Lange fire came onto a portion of our building; and that as a result there are said to be injuries and fatalities among our Faultless Linen employees.

Three people are dead from a boiler explosion today at Loy-Lange Box Company in St. Louis's Soulard area.

The St. Louis Fire Department said on Twitter that four other people also were injured, two critically, in the blast shortly before 8 a.m. Monday at the Loy-Lange Box Co.

Four people were taken to hospitals for treatment, including two in critical condition, Jenkerson said.

The blast at Loy-Lange Box Company sent part of the boiler crashing into a nearby building housing a linen laundry service, according to local Fox News affiliate KTVI.
